Castronuovo di Sant'Andrea

Description

It is a town in the province of Potenza, situated in the middle valley of the Sinni, clinging to the slopes of the mountain Manca, in an area rich of spectacular calanchi (badlands). The earliest records date back to 1125, when the village was mentioned with the name of "Castro Castrorum". According to some historians the origins date back to the V-VI century, when, after repeat Barbarian raids, the inhabitants of the countryside decided to shelter here, where once stood a former Roman military camp, calling it "Castrum Novum, to which was added in 1863, the name of St. Andrew, in honor of Andrea Avellino, a Theatine monk, born in Castronuovo and canonized in 1721.
No to miss:
